I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges.
Me: Okay, Sweetie, in or out, one direction or the other.
Miss Sweetie: Hmmm.
Me: Make up your mind.
Miss Sweetie: I don’t have one of those.
Me: A mind?
Stella: See, Lady Human, I told you.
Me: “Make up your mind” just means you decide something. Don’t halt between two opinions.
Miss Sweetie: What if I go outside and I don’t like it? It’s a little windy.
Me: Then come to the door and I’ll let you back in.
Miss Sweetie: But what if I come back inside and inside is boring?
Stella: Then sit around and be bored until next time.
Miss Sweetie: I’m not sure about this mind making thing. I’ll just sit right here in the doorway until I get a mind.
Stella: Nope. We’ll be waiting too long for that. The house will fill up with flies and skeeters.
